      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

female name?

Recommended Posts

I am getting a female lab and I cannot think of a name to call her in the field. MY wife wants Daisy or Dixie. I am supposed to come up with a couple. I have always been told to come up[ with a single syllable name for a dog. Anyone have a good name they have heard or used. My males name is Jack (that is were I got jegerjack)

Perhaps something original like "Dog".

Or take a page from the old KQ morning show and go with b - i - c - h.

You could also play off of the campaign antics of a certain female DFL legislator from Minneapolis who was caught fetching other peoples property and call her "Con (Kahn)"

One or two syllables really doesn't matter. They hear your voice and the first syllable and they know who you're talking to. My female is Mandy. I hunt with a guy who has a Maggie and he calls her Mags in the field.

I always have the same problem, not knowing what to name the dog.
Here is how I do it, I get the dog and watch him/her for a few weeks then give it a name to match his personality.
I named my last dog Woody because everytime he went out to take a dump he got a woody.
There were other names in the beginning that I cannot post here, But I am sure you know what I mean....

When I got my female lab, 9 years ago, she was 6 weeks old and named "Lady." I spose there are people who don't mind that name, but I hated it.

She's black, I named her Dale. There is a big #3 on her dog house.

I like names that have something to do with other things I like, my females name is Kenai, after the Kenai river in Alaska. My buddies dogs name is Pike, he acts like one too. I have a friend that named thier Irish setter Dublin for obvious reasons. What else do you like to do?

Like movies? Brando

Fishing? Loomis

Home Improvements? Makita

Nascar? Hemmi

Just some ideas, take something you enjoy and then come up with something that fits your personality and your hobbies.

My next dogs name is either Gretzky, or Freely, for Ace Freely the lead guitarist from KISS. Rock on!!!

You first have to come up with a big long important name to register your dog with the AKA. And then make sure you can get a hunting name out of it.
I.e. I name my dog "Winchester Johnathan Thomas the 1st" (after the first gun I bought my oldest son and then used each sons name in the dogs official name)
We call him Chester!
Have fun!

My yellow lab is named Molly.....she looked like a Molly when we picked her up.
I've also got a sweetheart of an 11y/o golden retriever named Chia ......the kids named her when she was a liitle ball of fur and they thought she looked like a Chia pet, the little clay figures that are covered with green plants.....now she's about 50 lbs overwieght and looks like a BIG Chia pet grin.gif

My personal favorite, that I'll use again some day for another dog (after I stop missing her so much) was a Brittany I had a few years back that I had to put down because she had bitten too many people (one of the hardest things I've ever done!) and was a one man dog that was VERY protective of my wife and kids, when she bit a neighbor kid that startled her when she was sleeping on the front step, I had no choice, anyways, her name was Wingo....I called her Wingnut.
I've always thaought that was a great name for a bird dog.

Good luck finding a name.

If it was a pointing dog, I'd have to go with Gissert's "Nellie". That way, when she locks up on a bird, you could say "Whoa, Nellie!" grin.gif

The name puts a mental picture of Little House on the Prairie in my mind though. HAH!

      As far as I know, never been there.  I know it's great for splake, browns and lakers.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case
    • Wanderer
      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
